ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Corey Joyner's first season with the Dougherty Trojans didn't go as planned.

Now, the head coach is bringing in someone very close to him to help turn the 1-9 Trojans around: his brother, Albany State Offensive Coordinator, Uyl.

Uyl Joyner resigned at ASU, effective Wednesday, and was at the Trojans' first spring practice that afternoon.

"I just saw the opportunity and took the opportunity," he says. "[ASU Head Coach Mike White] gave me his blessings and kind of moved on. All in all, I felt like this was the place for me."

White told WALB News 10 over the phone that Joyner's resignation was something he was aware of as a possibility last month, but was notified it became official this afternoon.

"He's a very good coach that will be greatly missed," White says.

White said the process to replace Joyner will begin very soon.

Uyl quarterbacked the Trojans to the 1998 AAA State Championship before becoming the Golden Rams' starting QB.

With ASU, Joyner passed for over 4,000 yards and 29 TDs. He was a 2003 SIAC First-Teamer and named to the Second Team in 2004.

Joyner is currently serving as a community coach while he searches for a job within the Dougherty County School System.
